Facial masks are one of the oldest known beauty treatments. A good facial mask can cure a multitude of sins–late nights, inadequate rest, bad food. You can make a facial from ordinary kitchen goods. Here are several which are inexpensive to make. These recipes are fun, easy, and can be used daily, weekly, or whenever you feel your skin needs a boost.
(do not use this if you are allergic to eggs)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 egg yoke
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
Beat the egg yoke with a fork, add the oil and blend well. Add the honey using a spoon that you have rinsed with hot water and blend well again. Smear it all over your face with your fingers, except do not cover your eyes. Leave it on your face for 15 minutes, then rinse it off.
- 1 cucumber
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon witch hazel (you can buy this in any drug store)
- 1 egg white, beaten with an electric beater until fluffy.
Peel the cucumber and run it through a blender or a food processor. Pour the cucumber pulp into a colander or strainer and force it through, catching the liquid that comes out in a bowl underneath. Combine the cucumber liquid with the lemon juice and the witch hazel. Stir it and add the beaten egg white gently. Put it on your face and leave it on for 15 to 25 minutes. Rinse off.

Whip the peach and egg white together in a blender until smooth. Gently pat the mixture all over your face. Relax for 30 minutes, then rinse it off with cool water.
Apple Mask for Normal Skin
- 1 Apple, cored & quartered
- 2 T Honey
Drop the apple pieces into a food processor and chop. Add honey and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Pat the mixture onto your face with a light tapping motion, tapping until the honey feels tacky. Leave it on for 30 minutes and then rinse.
